  1. I had completely forgotten about that reward, and completely missed the email. So, thanks for the heads up, folks! Downloading… now.
  2. is me.
  3. PSN ID exchange

    I'm antikewl. If you send a friend request be sure to mention Idlethumbs in the message so I don't delete it.
  4. Sam & Max Hit the Road's attractions are real?

    Many years ago, on a family road trip, I discovered that Stuckey's was a real thing. I obviously demanded that we stop and purchased a souvenir mug, much to the bemusement of my parents. Sadly, I no longer have that mug.
  5. Rock Band 3

    Yeah, that's exactly what I've found. Thanks for the Doors tip tho, I'll check it out.
  6. PL4YST4TION 4

    And by "today" I mean "a week ago".
  7. PL4YST4TION 4

    An interesting article over at Eurogamer today with specs of the two next next next gen consoles. Of course, it's all moot. Whichever one has the games wins.
  8. PL4YST4TION 4

    Isn't it supposed/rumoured to have a touchpad on the front, like the Vita back pad? Also, yeah, first thing I thought was that blue glowing strip looks Move-like.
  9. I think you mean "babywalled".
  10. Rock Band 3

    I picked this up for next to nothing over Christmas with the Pro Keyboard (the smallness of the instrument sold it to me, mostly) but the store communicates really badly what tracks have Pro keys etc. The website doesn't seem to help much either. Too bad no one plays this game, I'd assumed that at least one person on the internet would have compiled a list of tracks that are worth buying for keyboard.
  11. Aliens: Colonial Marines

    It's Killzone all over again, I guess. Still, I'm halfway through now and still enjoying it. Funnily enough, the best level so far has been the one with the Old Lady Alien gif.
  12. Aliens: Colonial Marines

    I'll just leave this here.
  13. Ni No Kuni

    Hah. Yeah, I've noticed you've been playing it pretty much non-stop since release. Oh, wow. I did not know you could do that!
  14. Aliens: Colonial Marines

    I'd love to see a game based on the first Alien movie… or with that same atmosphere. A single enemy, you're (near) powerless, all about psychological terror. It'd be fantastic! Anything based on Aliens and the Colonial Marines is going to be a run and gun, sadly.
  15. Aliens: Colonial Marines

    Holy shit, guys. Game redeemed!
  16. Aliens: Colonial Marines
  17. Aliens: Colonial Marines

    If you really want to geek out about this stuff (and I mean REALLY), there's a whole bunch of inconsistencies listed here: But, yes (I haven't got to that part yet, incidentally) this particular thing is one rather large plot hole. :/
  18. Ni No Kuni

    The switch between Ghibli cut scenes (few and far between, sadly), in-game animated conversation with audio, and the traditional "characters stand completely rigid without audio while you read text" JRPG bits are a little jarring at first but it just "feels Japanese" and I'm OK with that. Also the in-game animated stuff is still pretty nicely done though IMO and, as you say, the backgrounds are gorgeous.
  19. Ni No Kuni

    I'm really enjoying this game so far. I'm only a few hours in though. There is just one thing though… and I don't know whether this is because of the delightful music, the glacial pace of the story, newfound narcolepsy, or something else… I can only seem to play for about 45 minutes before I star nodding off! I'm forever finding myself sitting there, controller in hand, almost asleep! I don't think this has happened to me with a video game before. Anyone else? :/
  20. Maximillian Payne: Part Trois

    Every time Max speaks I think of Chris. Unfortunately that's probably the best thing about the game. Any game that encourages me to look for hidden gun bits while failing me for stopping to look for gun bits is a little annoying. That said, the near the start on headphones was wonderfully disorienting. And found myself agreeing with Chris, er, Max about the . Also, what's a SOILER tag?
  21. Entirely missed this thread! Book ordered! I haven't finished an entire book in years… probably since I stopped commuting and had kids. Hopefully this'll encourage me to read more.
  22. What was the NY Times podcast/article with the writer that had never played video games…?
